After a ton of job interviews, I got a great job offer this morning! Will be working full time at a public elementary school! Perfect job, lovely principal, very supportive sounding. Job starts in late august so only a bit more of working pt. Not that I don't love what I'm doing now- I'm a support professional helping a woman with disabilities- but the pay is putrid. Not nearly enough to live on! Hooray!

Yes! I was born to two artists who were both halves of the art dept at the university we lived next to. So I was brought up with art and teaching 24-7. When I was in school I was always doing the teachers' bulletin boards and drawing posters for them. It was natural to follow in my parents footsteps. Been making art my whole life, and teaching almost every year since grad school. Even married another artist. I've taught art in public school 22 years, college 4 years and private 1 year. Left teaching for 3 years when my mom died out of the blue and my elderly disabled father needed me to help him out until he died. It's been a struggle get back in, as last year was just the part time at the private (which pays very little.) I'm so happy to be back in the public schools. Thanks for asking!

That's great!  Do you mind my asking about your art?  I love art!  Are you a painter?  What do you like to make?

i am not an artist....I am an art dabbler.  I am starting a project to make a fish in the Calder style.  Sort of like my profile pic.  A bit frustrating but fun.

I love Calder....I've made mobiles in his style and it's so much fun! What media are you going to use? Construction paper stabiles are fun to make with kids. I remember as a kid, one time in a museum I blew on a part of a stabile to make it move... the guard comes rushing up to tell me not to, of course. And I'm thinking " Didn't Calder make it so it would catch wind and move? Wouldn't he be happy to see the part that's meant to move, move? " Have you been to the east wing in D.C.?

So I love to draw and paint and make jewelry, but my specialty is ceramics. Ceramic sculpture and mosaics in particular. I've made over a dozen large scale mosaics for the schools I've taught at. The largest one was 16 feet wide and 8 feet tall! Actually whatever I'm working on at the time is my favorite thing to do :)

If you ever want to spend the summer at the lake, I have a great concrete wall to mosaic!

i am trying to make the fish with copper tubing for the outside, wire to make the guts.  I have lots of stained glass and costume jewelry and other " stuff".  This one is  my experiment one using some old copper tubing that was left with the house.  I may try to paint it like Calder.  Not sure for my first try.  Trying to get the twisted tubing straight and flat was a chore.  I think I need to solder it or weld it - both of which I didn't bring with me to the lake, of course!

i fell in love with the Calder fish at the Hirshhorn in DC about 30 years ago when we lived there.

Gee, you didn't bring your oxyacetylene torch with you?

sounds like a great project. I love the hirshorne. Last time I was there was prolly 14 years ago when I held my middle son as a baby in front of a jasper john and took his pic. His name is jasper :) Their sculpture garden is the best, Rodin being my favorite.

    • In Austin, Wildwood Bakehouse and Wilder Wood Restaurant are totally gluten free.  I had the chicken fried steak and gravy and onion rings!!!  Awesome!!!  
    • If you yourself have Celiac's disease, you probably shouldn't give gluten-free sandwiches to the homeless, because they're disgusting. Your male neighbor doesn't need tampons. That sort of reasoning should be applied. But you must always remember that the Gospel requires you to treat other people ... View the full article
    • Hi there I have this exact same thing.. however I don’t have celiac that I know of.. I found this when google searching for what the heck is wrong with my face.  I was wondering if you ever found out.. or if it just went away. Thanks
    • I have read the newbie 101 and have been careful about reading labels. I'm the only one that's gluten free in my household, so they could be contaminating me. I was eating gluten for 6 weeks after my blood test because it took that long to get an official diagnosis and my GP told me to still be eating it for the tests to be accurate. It was probably too soon to retest, but the test was accidentally ordered by the lab. I have been having an increase in joint pain over the last couple months and my rheumatologist ordered lab work. The lab saw the celiac panel had been ordered, but didn't see results so they added it on because they thought it still needed done.  My gut issues are starting to get better, but I'm thinking the joint pain might have been from the celiacs because all of the rheumatoid tests came back normal for the first time in twenty years.
    • Hi and Welcome to the Forum.  I am glad that you are here! As with a lot of things in life, try not to compare yourself to other people. You are trying to be the best version of yourself - not Jill, Annie, or Maya.  People make a lot of foolish decisions in the world and it does not mean that you should do it too.  Also, many people are gluten free for a lot of reasons that aren't celiac. One of my best friends has gluten sensitivity but not celiac.  He eats a lot of food that I won't touch due to possible cross contamination which he doesn't worry about too much.  Be true to yourself and keep your self healthy.  It is so hard, but it's better than getting sick! I hate not being able to partake in yummy food at parties, but I have learned what junk food I can eat.  I will make sure to buy some tortilla chips or Fritos for picnics.  I freeze gluten-free cupcakes to eat when we celebrate birthday parties (I can just take one out of the freezer and go).  I make sure to take a dish to share to potlucks.  I ask permission at restaurants and parties to bring my own food - no one has ever said no, and when there is a time to celebrate, I splurge on something I really like.  Fortunately, there are a lot of gluten-free foods that I really like. Do i miss pizza and really good burger? YES! And sometimes, I still feel awkward, but life is so much more than food.
